Issue/Introduction

SUMMARY: When you delete a Custom Object that has at least 1 Boolean attribute, the Display Mapping for Boolean Attribute of all Objects were automatically updated to Type: 'Color' instead of Type: 'Icon'. 

  
STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 

1. Create a new custom object (my Object)
2. Create a new boolean type attribute (Object Boolean1) with display mapping (type 'Icon' [image]) 

3. Go to the Project Object 
4. Create a new boolean custom attribute (Project Boolean2) with display mapping (type 'Icon' [image]) 

   Set the Icon to something other than the default

   Set the Description to something other than the default

5. Delete the custom object created in Step 1 (my Object)

6. Flush the application caches - go to security.caches and click 'Flush All' 

 

Expected: Custom Boolean attribute created on Project object in step 3 should have Display mapping type to 'Icon'. 
Actual:  Display mapping type for Custom Boolean attribute created on Project object in Step 3 are removed. It changes to 'Color' and if you switch to Icon, it has the default values.

Workaround: None.  If this happens, all Boolean attributes will need to be reconfigured.
